Surgical approach to the Periimplantitis
A 67-year-old man, carrying 8 dental implants and two overdentures. He went to the dental clinic with slight discomfort in one of the implants.
On clinical examination, it showed an epulis fissuratum due to traumatism of the maxillary overdenture and periimplantitis.
One of the implants was removed and the adjacent one treated with EDTA and a large bone regeneration. 5 months later, a new implant with conical connection and hydrophilic surface was replaced. The highlight is the bone coating of the preserved implant.
Thank you in advance,
